Construction Under Way for Gough Park in Perry Hall
Towson, Maryland (October 1, 2013) – County Executive Kevin Kamenetz was surrounded by enthusiastic Perry Hall community and recreation leaders this morning at a groundbreaking ceremony celebrating the official start of construction of Gough Park, a new 17-acre park that will address a shortage of sports playing fields in this designated growth area.
Fun, Sports and Activity
"Public parks enhance our lives, and I am delighted to break ground on Gough Park, which will provide the people of Perry Hall with a fun, safe place for their families to play sports, exercise, have a picnic or simply connect with nature," said Kamenetz.
This park will feature athletic fields, walking trails, a comfort station and pavilions. The long-anticipated development of this park site will support multiple recreation council sports and activities in the Perry Hall area. It is expected to be completed in just over a year.
"This open space has been unused since purchased by Baltimore County more than a decade ago, and now it will serve one of our largest recreation councils," said 5th District Councilman David Marks. "I would like to commend County Executive Kamenetz for finding the resources to complete this project in such a challenging economic environment."
